We want to thank EVERYONE who gathered pledges/donated to our fall fundraiser this year! Together we raised $5,570 online and $2,608.37 in cash/checks for a total of $8,178.37 in gross donations. We reduced our expenses over $300 to $2,220.37 for total net proceeds of $5,958! This money will go toward funding this year’s field trips, teaching materials, technology, fun community events and other needs right here at our own school.
MANY THANKS are in order!
